Lenovo has a lot of devices to unveil at CES 2020, and this time around their gaming brand Legion takes center stage. The company plans to bring a more immersive experience to their latest gaming products fit for any type of gamer. Best of all, they’re planning to go all out and provide more gaming power than ever before, thanks to one new gadget.
The thin and light gaming machine
One of these new gaming devices is the Lenovo Legion Y740S, which is a rather “lite” version of the Legion Y740 already out in the market. Unlike the Legion Y740, the Legion Y740S comes with an upgraded processor, a clearer display, and a much thinner build. This device is available with up to a 10th generation Intel Core i9 H processor — suitable for gaming performance. Also, it comes with up to 32GB of RAM and 1TB worth of SSD storage for smoother load times.
Lenovo also introduced Q-Control, giving you control over the overall performance for the device. Switch to Performance Mode to squeeze out as much power in gaming as the device can handle. But, if you’re more of a day-to-day productive user, there are other modes that fit for your needs. Apart from this, the Legion Y740S comes with a 4K IPS panel with a 60Hz refresh rate and 100 percent sRGB color gamut, ideal for fast-pacing gaming and video streaming.
They’ve also created a Studio Edition, which has the latest NVIDIA GPU inside fit for the on-the-go gamer. Of course, for those who value work and play, this device fully supports the other big piece of gaming technology Lenovo has to offer.
Their first eGPU that complements work and play
Along with the Legion Y740S, Lenovo also releases the Lenovo Legion BoostStation, it’s very own eGPU module. The eGPU supports both NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards for the ultimate gaming experience fit for your thin and light laptop. All of that is encased inside an aluminum box complete with a cool transparent side panel for air outflow.
The eGPU module fits well for any gaming battle station, complete with enough ports and space for AR and VR gaming. The BoostStation eGPU also comes with fast charging and additional storage slots just in case you want more data in your system.
The Lenovo Legion Y740S and BoostStation will be available sometime in May 2020. The Legion Y740S is priced at US$ 1,099.99 (PhP 56,300), while the Legion BoostStation comes in at US$ 249.99 (PhP 12,799).

Working and learning from home has now become the norm for a lot of people around the world. If you’re looking for a flexible workstation, or even just to stay entertained during self-isolation, the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook is now available for purchase.
The new Galaxy Chromebook combines the best of Samsung’s Galaxy tech such as an AMOLED display and built-in-pen support, with the simple and fast Chrome OS.
Its AMOLED display is the first ever featured on a Chromebook and delivers 4K UHD resolution for a more immersive Netflix and chill experience.
It’s also packed with productivity tools, such as the built-in pen for note taking, drawing, or signing documents. Internally it’s powered by the latest 10th Gen Intel Core i5 processor.
It’s also equipped with Intel Wi-Fi 6, so your next Zoom meeting (or party) would go as seamlessly as possible. There’s a good helping of ports available — two USB-C ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a UFS/MicroSD slot. RAM can go up as high as 16GB while storage is up to 1TB SSD.
Those who have shifted to digital learning for the time being can enjoy a more collaborative experience through Chrome OS features like Google Drive functionality.
There’s also Click-to-Call and Messaging apps along with other Samsung smartphone features that you can access directly on the laptop.
Google Assistant is also readily available whenever you need it.
The Galaxy Chromebook is available in Fiesta Red and Mercury Gray on Samsung.com and Best Buy for US$ 999.99.
Sex tech is for everyone, not just for men
CES 2020 encourages sex positivity
Startup Lora DiCarlo graced the headlines last year for having its award revoked by the committee behind the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The startup believes it was unjust and fought for its right to be part of the annual show.
This year, Lora DiCarlo is the talk of the town once again, not because of an issue, but for being in the spotlight of CES 2020. Lora DiCarlo paved the way for sex tech to be out in the open, particularly companies with devices geared for women’s sex, health, and wellness.
Sex tech isn’t new, but sex being taboo in this modern yet surprisingly conservative society took the spotlight away from their devices. In case you’re wondering, sex technology mostly ventures on innovations to enhance our sexuality and sexual experience.
In 2017, men enjoyed VR porn as if it was that revolutionary, while sex toys and vibrators that offer solutions to enhance our experiences and relationships aren’t getting the splash they deserve. Thankfully, CES 2020 is taking a step forward in ending sexism and encourage sex-positivity. After all, sex is part of human nature.
Ever since Lora Haddock DiCarlo — the founder of Lora DiCarlo — fought for their right to be at CES, I was astounded and followed her journey. I’m all ears for women speaking up, especially with the goal of making a change in our society.
Now that DiCarlo and her company sparked a controversy, sex tech are now in the spotlight of the annual show held at Las Vegas. DiCarlo didn’t expect herself to be at the forefront of change, but it elevated her profile and grew her business.
Pleasure is at the forefront
At CES 2020, Lora DiCarlo showcased their first device once again — the Osé — is a personal massager which produces blended orgasm by mimicking movements of a human partner. It’s that revolutionary, hence, gaining an innovation award. I mean, just imagine a device pleasuring you the way a human partner does — It’s astonishing!
Additionally, Lora DiCarlo unveiled two more devices: Baci and Onda. Baci is a micro-robotic device which stimulates the feel and motion of human lips and tongue, while Onda mimics the motion of human fingers. Even though it’s meant for women, I can’t wait to actually try one!
More sex technology to solve our needs
DiCarlo’s fight enabled other companies and devices to get noticed and join the spotlight. Satisfyer showed-off Satisyfer Connect, an app that can be used remotely with a long-distance partner. Lioness delivered its second-generation vibrator tracking data to improve orgasms.
Furthermore, Womanizer exhibited their products and Pleasure Air Technology — a combination of suction and pressure waves — which brings a mindblowing, orgasmic experience. While all of these talk about pleasure, Morari introduced a “band-aid” that withholds pleasure, solving the premature ejaculation issue prevalent with men.
2020 might just be the beginning, but CES showcasing sex technology is a huge step forward in encouraging a sex-positive society. If you’re still iffy about this technology, remember that you’re not the target audience and that you were born because your parents had sex.
